Knife Skills & The Classics

Coming up this August!

It chops and smashes, slices and dices. It can julienne a potato into the most delicate si, cube the tenderest tofu and even hack through the toughest joint of meat. It’s not a thousand kuai sixteen-speed food processor or even an equally pricey set of Wüsthof cutlery. It’s the humble Chinese cleaver!

If you wish to explore the amazing versatility of the cleaver – often the sole cutting implement in the Chinese kitchen – and master a range of cutting techniques, join us in Knife Skills & The Classics. The class will be hands on and will teach you to slice, shred, mince and debone with a cleaver, while you learn to whip up three classic Chinese dishes.

The Hutong’s Chinese Kitchen series is designed to teach you the basics and beyond. Each of our cooking workshops covers wok and cutting techniques, tips on how to combine spices and provides the Chinese names of ingredients. You’ll learn how to make best use of fresh seasonal produce and prepare balanced Chinese meals for your friends and family. Take a gastronomic tour of China’s regions in our Chinese Kitchen. Only at The Hutong. Sharing Culture. Sharing Knowledge.

Cost for class only: 249 RMB, 199 for members + 1 RMB lolly bill (click here to find out more).
